Catedral de Barcelona



Built between the 13th and 15th centuries on the old Romanesque cathedral, built in turn on a church from the Visigoth period that was preceded by an early Christian basilica, which can still be visited underground, such as the baptismal pool in the History Museum from the city. On the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona (1888) it was finished with a Gothic stylistic criterion awarded to Josep Oriol Mestres, inspired by the designs made in 1408 by Carles Galtés de Ruan.
